The Strongest Kratom Strains

The Strongest Kratom Strains

Kratom is remarkably versatile. Some people use kratom for pain relief, while others enjoy the plant’s relaxing and mood-boosting properties.

But as you might expect, there’s a universal demand for strong kratom. After all, the more potent kratom is, the more effective its properties are.

Unfortunately, with dozens of kratom variants, or strains on the market, finding the right kind of strong kratom for you isn’t always easy.

To help narrow down your options, we examined five kratom strains that users commonly describe as “strong.” And, to keep everyone happy, we’ve made sure to include strains that excel in each category: pain relief, sedation, stimulation, euphoria, and duration.

Let’s take a look!

Red Bali: Powerful Pain Relief

For many users, Red Bali is a go-to option for sedation and pain relief. And upon closer examination, it’s easy to see why.

As of this writing, Red Bali is one of the highest-scoring strains for sedation and pain relief that we’ve reviewed. In fact, some users have found the strain to be too potent.

Red Bali’s other strength is its accessibility. As one of the most popular kratom strains, it’s easy to come by, and many online kratom vendors carry it year-round!

White Horn: Long-lasting Energy

As a white kratom strain, White Horn seems to excel at providing energy and focus. However, White Horn also appears to eclipse its peers, potentially making it one of the most stimulating white strains available.

Not to be outdone, White Horn also seems to boast an above-average duration of effects. So, if it’s long-lasting energy you’re after, White Horn should probably be at the top of your list. Just don’t expect much pain relief or sedation.

Red Bentuangie: Sustained Sedation

Some call it “conking out.” Others refer to it as “restful relaxation.” But regardless of how you define it, if it’s sedation you’re after, Red Bentuangie may be the strain for you.

Currently, Red Bentuangie holds a formidable 9.5 score for sedation. Users have regularly praised its ability to set the stage for effective rest and relaxation.

Red Bentuangie also seems notably long-lasting. At moderate doses (2.5-5g), its effects may last upwards of 4.5 hours. However, Red Bentuangie isn’t as common as other strains and can be difficult to find as a result.

Ganesh Maeng Da: Mellow Mood

Let’s face it: it’s hard to be in a good mood around-the-clock. Physical discomfort and mental fatigue can take a toll on our mood, leaving us irritable and short-tempered.

Thankfully, many kratom strains provide a noticeable mood-boost. Ganesh Maeng Da is one of those strains, and according to user scores, it’s also likely to be one of the most effective.

As a blend of Red Maeng Da and Elephant kratom, Ganesh Maeng Da seems to offer a balanced range of effects. However, the strain’s supposedly strong mood-boost appears to be its biggest strength.

White Vietnam: Stupendous Stimulation

We’ve already named one energizing strain on this list. But it wouldn’t be right to stop White Vietnam from sharing the spotlight.

Although White Vietnam can’t seem to match White Horn’s above-average duration, the strain’s strongly stimulating nature appears to make up for it. To date, White Vietnam is the only strain we’ve analyzed that’s scored a perfect 10 for stimulation. You can imagine why we’ve included it on this list!

That said, with great power comes some apparent disadvantages. Some users have actually described White Vietnam as “overstimulating.” The strain also appears to be somewhat of a “one-trick-pony.” Although it seems to excel at providing energy, it might not offer much else.

Still, if you’re looking to “recharge” with kratom, White Vietnam seems to be an obvious choice!

Finding a super-powered kratom strain may take some time. Kratom can be a fickle plant, and its effects aren’t always consistent between users. What works for someone else might not work for you, and vice-versa.
